有效防火

  • 你在垃圾行业看到的常见消防安全问题是什么?

虽然EA已将FPP强制用于所有站点,但这些站点往往表示需要安装“抑制解决方案”

特别是在废物和回收利用以及废物转化为能源的场所,我们往往看到普遍缺乏有效的防火和灭火系统。虽然EA已将FPP强制用于所有站点,但这些站点往往表示需要安装“抑制解决方案”。它通常不会规定任何所需的标准、合规性的特定规范,也不总是考虑系统将被使用和应有效运行的条件。

难度是决策主要是由成本驱动的。这可以通过选择不解决个人风险的不合标准系统来导致不知不觉地切割的网站。例如,业务可以选择喷水灭火系统作为自动抑制系统的更便宜的替代品,但是,如果火灾突破,该系统可能旨在保护仓库壳,而不是团队和有价值的设备。

消防安全系统

  • 保险公司通常如何推荐消防安全系统?

在许多情况下,保险系统将来自制造商的交易。例如,叉车可以预先安装有车辆灭火系统,该系统被安装为与制造商的散装交易的一部分安装。然而,该模板系统在每个操作环境中可能不适合,例如要求车辆连续运行的那些,几乎没有停机时间,以满足繁忙的工作时间表。

如果现场证明已实施消防措施,一些保险公司将接受保单,而不验证这些措施在雷竞技在哪里下载实践中的有效性。这会导致企业信任一个不适合其个人风险的系统。此外,保险承保模板通常只规定“批准系统”的必要性,很少鼓励企业超出最低批准要求。

这正是保险公司在推动标准提高方面可以发挥关键作用的地方。

个人风险评估

  • 还有什么可以做的?

一些认证标准可用于指导保险公司决策和更有效的保护遗留场所

虽然不是强制性的,但是一些认证标准可用于更有效地指导保险公司决策和保障网站。这些标准的两个关键示例是FM批准和SPCR(P-Mark)。如果系统携带FM批准标记,则受开个人风险评估,企业和保险公司可以信任其有效维护网站的能力。而SPCR(P-MARK)标准作为重型车辆和机械灭火系统的行业基准。

这两个标准都评估了系统的有效性,应用一系列测试,以确保它们在实践中有用。用于驾驶安全标准的ONU是与保险公司的。这是关于推荐合适的场地和环境的合适系统 - 教育是一个重要的部分。保险公司需要自信地执行检查,以确保措施和系统足以充分保护网站。这是一个双赢的情景。

影响风险的因素

这些标准提高了系统适用性的透明度,防止企业在不知情的情况下选择不合格的解决方案,并为团队和资产提供了对网站安全的信心。对于保险公司来说,更安全的地点意味着火灾风险降低,这意味着赔付成本也可能降低。

  • 近年来,该行业的安全如何变化如何?

通常情况下,废物和回收利用以及废物转化能源一直是“流氓”操作领域,但近年来安全标准有所提高,EA在消防安全指导方面继续变得更加严格。有许多不同的因素影响着各部门的风险,这使得解决这一问题变得更加紧迫。

防火系统

通过采用安全标准,保险业可以减少防火系统不足的情况

这些包括BREXIT和基本的公约法规和中国禁令对固体废物进口的产生影响,这两者都导致新的出口限制被放置在以前高度依赖于废物处理的地区。这导致废物场的许多废物运输延迟和更高的存储水平,以更靠近存储容量操作的领先地点。

反过来,这增加了对防火和抑制系统的依赖,以确保安全的场地。

独特的操作环境

  • 2021年及以后的下一步行动是什么?

整个保险市场需要共同努力。这是一种集体方法。EA将继续推动在现场采取更大的缓解措施。然而,通过采用有效的安全标准,如FM批准和SPCR(P标志),保险业可以采取行动,减少防火和灭火系统不足的情况。

消防安全就是选择和保险合适的系统。保险公司需要考虑废物和回收利用和浪费的场地的独特操作环境 - 这是一个至关重要的下一步。

COVID-19大流行对2021年及以后消防服务的影响
COVID-19大流行对2021年及以后消防服务的影响

COVID-19大流行对消防部门的影响将至少持续到2021年,并可能持续数年。具体而言,流感大流行的几个方面对消防服务产生了长期影响,并可能永远改变它。对健康问题的更多认识一方面,这场流行病提高了人们对消防员健康问题的认识。在这方面,COVID-19只是围绕消防服务的一系列健康问题中的最新一个。然而,一个全球性的流行病是很难被忽视或忽视的,不像其他一些永久的健康问题,如身体疲惫,癌症的风险和精神和情感倦怠。理想的情况是,解决围绕新型冠状病毒的健康问题的紧迫性将转化为更好地管理长期关注的更持久和最终不可收回的健康问题。最后,对健康的关注应该是广泛的和内在的。提高对广泛的健康问题的认识应在消防服务中根深蒂固,以促成更多的行动,这是非常需要和早就应该采取的行动。更加关注个人防护装备COVID-19流感大流行的另一个积极因素是更加关注个人防护装备(PPE)COVID-19流感大流行的另一个积极因素是更加关注个人防护装备(PPE)。强调在大流行期间使用口罩是否可以转化为更广泛和长期地认识到个人防护装备的重要作用,以及更一致地使用口罩来保护消防人员?对大流行期间个人防护用品供应的担忧还表明,需要管理设备的使用水平,以确保市场的变化不会使一个部门的人员得不到保护。消防部门面临的财务和预算挑战COVID-19流行病也强调了各级消防部门预算的脆弱性。随着税收收入和筹款资金的减少,各部门都受到了负面影响。还没结束呢。金融斗争将持续到流感大流行的最后阶段。解决预算影响将延伸到未来的预算周期,消防部门将继续感受到影响。与以往相比,各部门将需要寻找额外的资金来源,如政府和基金会补助金。迫在眉睫的人力危机和对COVID-19大流行的担忧加速了消防员的退休率,更不用说由于预算削减而降低人数的可能性了。与COVID-19打交道的压力可能会阻止可能的新兵加入消防队。归根结底,消防部门的人力危机迫在眉睫;或者,我应该说,已经存在的人力危机正在加速。此外,志愿服务部门发现吸引人员比以往任何时候都困难,招募有偿消防员也有自己的一系列挑战。流感大流行的一个遗留问题可能是,为消防部门招募人力更加困难。随着公共卫生和安全环境的发展,消防人员的培训也在不断发展。在公共卫生紧急情况下,许多消防部门以各种方式寻求帮助,而COVID-19大流行也使他们的资源捉襟见肘。例如,呼吁更多部门填补应急管理、社区安全等方面的空白。随着公共卫生和安全环境的发展,消防部门的作用也在不断变化。如果这些变化持续到“新常态”,消防部门将难以履行其扩大的职责。各部门需要投入其稀缺资源,培训消防人员,以新的和不同的方式应对社区需求。消防部门需要少花钱多办事综合起来,这些因素表明消防部门需要少花钱多办事,消防部门需要在解决健康问题、管理个人防护用品供应、招聘新人员和扩大服务以满足社区不断变化的需求方面加大力度。然而,资金和其他资源的减少反映了一个可能永远改变的业务环境。总的来说,在全球COVID-19流感大流行期间,消防部门也应付自如。善后工作还需要消防志愿者和专业人员更加努力地完成一项艰巨而不断扩大的任务。

In many cases, insured systems will arise from a manufacturer’s deal. For example, a forklift may be pre-fitted with a vehicle fire suppression system, which was installed as part of a bulk deal with the manufacturer. However, that template system may not be fit for purpose in every operating environment, such as those which require the vehicle to operate continuously, with little downtime, to fulfil busy work schedules. If a site demonstrates that it has fire protection measures implemented, some insurers will accept the policy, without verifying how effective those measures are in practice. This can lead businesses to trust a system that isn’t the most suitable for their individual risks. Also, insurance underwriting templates will often only stipulate the need for ‘an approved system’, giving little incentive for businesses to go beyond the minimum approval requirements. That’s where insurers can play a crucial part in driving up standards. individual risk assessment What more could be done? Some certification standards can be used to guide insurer decisions and safeguard sites more effectively Although not compulsory, some certification standards can be used to guide insurer decisions and safeguard sites more effectively. Two key examples of these standards being the FM Approval and SPCR (P-Mark). If a system carries the FM approval mark, subject to an individual risk assessment, businesses and insurers can trust its ability to effectively safeguard a site. Whereas the SPCR (P-Mark) standard acts as an industry benchmark for the fire suppression systems for heavy vehicles and machinery. Both of these standards evaluate the effectiveness of a system, applying a range of tests to ensure they are fit for purpose in practice. The onus for driving safety standards forward is with the insurer. It’s about recommending the right systems for the right sites and environments - education is a crucial part of that. Insurers need to confidently carry out checks to ensure measures and systems are robust enough to adequately protect the site. It’s a win-win scenario. factors influencing risk The standards promote greater transparency on the suitability of systems, preventing businesses from unknowingly selecting a substandard solution and delivering confidence in the safety of the site for teams and assets. For insurers, a safer site means decreased fire risk, meaning pay out costs are also likely to decrease. How has the safety of the industry changed over recent years? Typically, waste and recycling and waste to energy have always been ‘rogue’ operating areas, but safety standards have moved on in recent years, and the EA continues to become more stringent in its fire safety guidance. There are a number of different factors influencing risk across the sectors, making addressing the issue all the more urgent. fire suppression systems By adopting safety standards, the insurance industry can move to reduce inadequate fire prevention systems These include Brexit and the resulting implications of the Basel Convention regulations and China’s ban on solid waste imports, both of which are causing new export restrictions to be placed upon areas which were previously highly relied upon for waste disposal. This is causing a number of waste transportation delays and higher storage levels for waste sites, leading sites to operate closer to storage capacity. In turn, this increases dependence on fire prevention and suppression systems to ensure safe sites. unique operating environments What are the next steps throughout 2021 and beyond? The whole insurance market needs to work together. It’s a collective approach. The EA will continue to push for greater mitigation measures on site. However, by adopting effective safety standards, such as FM approval and SPCR (P Mark), the insurance industry can move to reduce the presence of inadequate fire prevention and suppression systems. Fire safety is all about selecting and insuring the right systems. Insurers need to account for the unique operating environments of sites within the waste and recycling and waste to energy sectors - that is the crucial next step.

Pockealk为第一个受访者提供82种语言的即时翻译
Pockealk为第一个受访者提供82种语言的即时翻译

紧急情况下的翻译是一项挑战,首先是一次响应者每天面对。例如,伦敦卢顿机场的消防服务以前必须找到一个员工或乘客,这些乘客可以帮助他们翻译,这并不总是可能的。作为最后的度假胜地,该服务将围绕一个大量的众多医疗问题携带众多语言,但这并没有解决理解任何回复的问题。AI动力语言翻译设备现在他们拥有更多即时设备,以提供更快和更简单的通信方式。它被称为PocketAkp,一种AI动力语言翻译设备,用于在嘈杂的环境中触摸按钮的即时和准确的双向对话,即使在嘈杂的环境中也是如此。PocketAkk支持82种语言,涉及世界90%的人口。它已被用作紧急通信工具,以便在消防员工和医疗保健从业者及其服务用户/患者等响应者之间分解障碍。快速,轻松,平静的消防员可以使用PocketAkp快速,轻松,平静地与紧急情况的人们沟通。它有助于他们克服语言障碍,实现一系列目标 - 从评估那些不会将英语造成的人的伤害作为第一个语言,以便向他们提出有关紧急情况的更多信息。组织面临着越来越多的挑战,以满足不断变化的沟通需求。 For example, among the United Kingdom’s increasingly diverse population, around one in ten people do not speak English as their first language. In areas like London, this figure is around one in five people. Emergency Services Donations Healthcare providers including five UK ambulance services received donations and are using Pocketalk Following an announcement earlier in 2020 that 500 Pocketalk W devices were being donated to emergency services providers in Europe to help them deal with COVID-19, London Luton Airport’s Fire Service was one of the organizations to apply for units. Healthcare providers including five UK ambulance services - North West Ambulance Service NHS Trust, Avon Valley Community Responders, St Johns Ambulance (Norwich), St Johns Ambulance (Greater Manchester), and Special Ambulance Transfers – also received donations and are using Pocketalk. The parent company, Sourcenext, has an interest in language learning, which is where Pocketalk came from. The product vision was simple –to make it easy for people who speak different languages to understand each other. Pocketalk is now helping to break down language barriers all over the world. Awareness & Usefulness The best way to increase awareness of Pocketalk and its usefulness in an emergency situation is to get the devices in the hands of service users, the company says. “During the start of the COVID pandemic, we wanted to help people by donating devices to emergency services teams,” says Tomoaki Kojim, Senior Managing Director of Sourcenext Corp. “This, in turn, has helped these teams to understand exactly how it can be of benefit in an emergency —namely, by providing quick and accurate language translations, without the need for an interpreter (in person or on the phone).” Two-Way Communication Pocketalk helped to open up two-way communication quickly and save time for medical emergencies For the London Luton Airport Fire Service, Pocketalk devices have helped to open up that two-way communication quickly. In medical emergencies, time can be crucial – Pocketalk not only helps them to save time but also to get a detailed account from the patient or any witnesses to an incident. It has also helped with general communication from the passengers, some of whom are distressed when trying to find the correct gate or which bus to catch as they leave the airport. No Language Barrier London Luton Airport Fire Service has not had to change any of its procedures after implementing Pocketalk, but they have been very happy to retire their translation book. It also reassures them that language is not the barrier it used to be when dealing with people during their working day. For them, implementing Pocketalk devices has been easy, and all operational members of staff at the fire station have had a short training session on how to operate the Pocketalk devices. The fire service has also loaned its spare device to passenger services assistants at the airport to help them with any potential communication issues. One challenge to implementing the device could be getting staff to learn how to use it and practice with it in training situations, so they can really rely on it in an emergency. That said, “Pocketalk is easy to use and does not take long to master,” says Kojim.
